Morrison was traded tonight to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Brian Connelly, a name that surely no one has heard of.
After doing some research, and watching some footage, this Connelly kid is quite impressive. At only 5'10, he may not be as intimidating as some defensemen, however with 52 points in 80 games last season, and a AHL All-Star, who according to some is a "threat on the powerplay, with amazing speed" the Flames snagged a solid player - for cheap.
Brendan Morrison will be missed, and was a great character player. This gives him the chance he deserves at winning a cup finally.
Feaster was quoted as saying "...we felt it was going to be difficult for us to find a spot for Brendan or get him significant ice-time".
Could this be a sign that Jeff Carter, or potentially Roy could be coming to Calgary?
I've heard from a few people that Feaster has been questioning about Roy.
Only time will tell.
That's all for now, folks. Have a great weekend!
